Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that I am thankful and have my gratitude present and worn on my sleeves every day and not just on Thanksgiving. But, it’s nice to still put it out there and remind myself.
Today, I’m thankful for my wonderful family that keeps things interesting and fun. I’m thankful for Mr. Serious who is an awesome husband and father. I’m thankful for our happy and healthy girls who think each is equally hilarious. (The bigs were cracking up that the littlest had pulled herself up to see what they were doing. She’s super nosey just like her sisters!)
I’m thankful that my girls were all full-term healthy-at-birth babies. There are so many parents that aren’t so lucky.
I missed Preemie Awareness Day on November 17th, but it’s still important to remember all of the parents and kiddos that are separated this holiday or doing hospital visits. There are so many babies that are born too early, or because they are now sick because of their premature birth. RSV is scary business, especially for those early babies.
With N and E, even though they were full-term, both of them ended up at the doctor getting RSV tests around 2 weeks old because of a bad cough and fever. It was a very scary time for us but we were lucky that wasn’t the diagnosis. It was hard to keep older siblings away from them, but we reminded them to do a lot of hand washing to try to keep germ spreading to a minimum

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of MedImmune and I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
